Claire Luce Baldwin is an illustrator and writer based in Portland, Oregon. Her work is inspired by a passion for wilderness and storytelling, and her mediums include watercolor, photography, and ceramics. 


She completed 2 years at Tyler School of Art, and graduated from University of Maryland in 2016 with a B.A. in Maternal and Child Health Equity. Her love of wild places led her to work as an environmental educator in Northern California, as a prep-cook in Stehekin in North Cascades National Park, and as a front desk clerk in Glacier National Park. In 2018, she created a centennial poster series for Grand Canyon informed by her three seasons working as a Park Ranger, field school instructor, and Youth Conservation Corps Crew Lead in the park.


She is currently developing an illustrated YA novel and completing a graphic design certificate program.
